Hi guys i was just wondering what the difference is between the willkison vs 50 and vs 100 tremolo was, can any one tell me if it's worth it for the extra £100 the vs100. I'm building a custom tele and i've already spent too much on it so if any one could help it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Calum

The 100 has a stainless steel block, has a different saddle setup that's supposed to be more stable, and is at least supposed to be built to a higher spec. Different manufacturers build a licensed trem, though, so a Gotoh VS50 is going to be made better than a GFS VS100.

There shouldn't be that much difference in price - £100 is more than I paid for my VS100. I'm sure prices are a lot different in Europe, but perhaps you can get one imported from StewMac or something? Even with shipping costs it sounds like you'd be saving money. That is a crapload of money to be spending on a bridge.

on ebay the vs 100's are £140 and the vs50's are only about £40 or £50. I'll be putting locking tuners on will the at least hold tune as well as each other. i look in to the vs 50 and see if it's any good.

and i can't seem to find any vs50's that say the are made by Gotoh.

For mounting, this bridge is the ultimate in self-alignment. The left stud locates the bridge in its half circle detent and the other rests against a straight blade for consistent, accurate pivoting and position. This is a proven, excellent bridge design.
